CMM Weekly News Recap-October 4, 2019

October 4, 2019

Wednesday was set aside as a day to thank custodians for everything they do to keep facilities healthy, clean, and safe. If you missed National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day, don’t panic. Every day is the right day to show appreciation to these invaluable workers.

Unfortunately there are some workers you may not want to thank, such as the worker who used a dirty mop to clean the counter at a sandwich shop. The worker’s actions were filmed and went viral on social media, causing the health department to inspect and then shut down the restaurant.

Another story of cleaning workers gone bad includes staff hired to clean the sleeper trains in the United Kingdom. Their overzealous use of a caustic cleaning agent led to the ruin of all the toilets and plumbing on the trains, leaving passengers without water.

Speaking of toilets, don’t forget to register for CMM’s restroom care webinar, Grout Doubts & Odor Obstacles, on October 15 at 2 p.m. CST. The webinar presenters will offer tips on cleaning grout and eliminating tough odors, as well as other restroom challenges.

Labors issues have been a hot topic in the news this week, with custodians working for Oregon public universities avoiding a strike, while custodians working in General Motors Co. facilities remain without a contract and some have even been laid off.

CMM will keep you on top of the latest cleaning news next week. For now, enjoy the weekend and don’t forget to thank a custodian.
